Sarin nerve gas used in a terrorist attack in the Tokyo subway 1995. Progress has been made in the search for new drugs against poisoning by nerve agents such as sarin, according to a study from the Swedish Defence Research Agency, Umeå University and researchers in Germany. - We have made a breakthrough discovery that opens up great opportunities for future research to develop new antidotes against nerve gas poisoning, says Anna Linusson, professor at the Department of Chemistry at Umeå University, the Echo on Swedish Radio. The volatile nerve agent sarin symptoms including shortness of breath, vomiting, and visual disturbances. The researchers have now been able to show how the nerve gas can be removed from the affected protein acetylcholinesterase. The study is published in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
When wind flows across a long object, like a daffodil stem, it sheds little eddies of wind along each side, with a small vortex of low pressure forming in the wake.Perhaps you ve heard it had to do with a phenomenon known as forced resonance: the wind matched the bridge s natural resonant frequency, gaining energy with every undulation until it broke apart.The vortex shedding is what caused the bridge to gallop, undulating up and down in response to high winds—hence its nickname, Galloping Gertie.For anyone interested in all the gory engineering details, Pasternack s lengthy examination is a must-read.This doesn t detract from the Korean scientists paper s main takeaway: that you can eliminate vortex shedding and significantly reduce drag by employing a twisty, helical shape when designing an object.And co-author Haecheon Choi said he and his colleagues already have a patent for a daffodil-inspired golf club.
The company also announced in the blog post that they will be working with content partners like NBA, BuzzFeed and Tastemade to explore new ways of storytelling in virtual environments that will provide valuable lessons about the way creators and viewers interact with VR video.YouTube also announced that its bringing its Jump VR camera program to its YouTube Spaces in LA and NYC and plans to bring to all of its global locations soon to help content creators start working in virtual reality.Whereas Google Cardboard was mobile-first in that you selected and navigated Cardboard-compatible apps up to the point of viewing the content at which point you d slot the phone into your headset and hold the viewer up to your face, Daydream is designed for navigation within VR and thus this version of YouTube had to be designed from the ground up.It will be interesting to see how things like text-entry work on the app or whether the company will largely shift attention towards voice search across not just the YouTube app but the entire Daydream interface.The reference design controller that Google has shown off is capable of selecting items onscreen like a laser pointer so text entry could be relatively straightforward, albeit cumbersome.Based on the lone screenshot that YouTube generously showed off, it looks like the app allows interface navigation from within video playback on the pause screen which is quite interesting and offers suggestions of how user experience on Daydream may differ from the navigation frameworks of other mobile VR headsets like Gear VR.
By that definition, we've been using cosmetics since the Ice Age, where red pigment used to adorn the body was found in South African caves.Instagram and Tinder have only enhanced this, creating a false beauty reality, thanks to the popularity of filters and retouching apps.However, technology has helped broaden the mainstream media space empowering women.For the first time, we're seeing girls of all shapes and sizes, who have a variety of different skin tones, who have extreme acne, being given face time.2 Technology is empowering women to see through the bullshit"In the factory we make cosmetics; in the drugstore we sell hope"Charles RevsonBeauty brands like Revlon create this unattainable image of beauty, and sell hope to women that they may achieve it.3D printing is enabling women to bypass premium brands in the hunt for premium results.
Casemaker Lian Li has introduced an upcoming line of steel-based mid tower cases aimed at system builders on a budget seeking value.Although they branch away from the company s typical aluminum-based focus, they still offer Lian Li trademarks including vibration-dampened PSU mounts, drive cages, removable mesh filters on fan mounts, and so on.But Lian Li said on Tuesday that the PC-K5 will support ATX or mATX motherboards and provide two hard-drive cages that store up to a maximum of four 3.5-inch drives or four 2.5-inch drives.As for other features, the upcoming PC-K5 will include two 5.25-inch bays, one USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, and HD audio inputs on the top panel.System builders will even be able to add two additional 120mm fans, but if water cooling is your thing, then a radiator measuring 120mm x 240mm x 60mm can be installed on the top fan mount.The company said it borrows from its J-series line of cases that cover the drives and power supply with steel panels so that the motherboard and expansion cards are the focus of attention.
A new study released by NASA on Tuesday shows that oceans on Europa, one of Jupiter s 67 known moons, might have a lot in common with our own oceans, including a chemical balance capable of harboring life.Scientists have been eyeing the mysterious water world as one of the most promising places to find alien life for a while now, and this study suggests they're on the right track.The moon, which is only a quarter the size of Earth, is covered in a thick shell of ice.But there is strong evidence that there could be a salty ocean deep beneath its surface.For the study, scientists at NASA s Jet Propulsion Laboratory compared Europa s potential for producing hydrogen and oxygen with Earth s using the same methods developed to study Earth s oceans."The cycling of oxygen and hydrogen in Europa's ocean will be a major driver for Europa's ocean chemistry and any life there, just as it is on Earth," NASA planetary geophysicist and lead author Steve Vance said in a press release.The right balanceScientists want to get a closer look at how Europa s seawater interacts with deep cracks that are thought to form at the surface of the moon's rocky core.On Earth, when new cracks form, the new rock reacts with the water, producing minerals and releasing hydrogen.They're looking to see if the same reactions are occuring on Europa.They're also looking for signs of the ability to support life in Europa s icy exterior — and on this front they've made some solid gains.Thanks to its scant atmosphere, Europa is constantly bombarded by cosmic radiation which breaks up the chemical bonds of the ice within.Whether or not life and biological processes complete the circuit is part of what motivates our exploration of Europa," Hand said in the press release.And the next step in answering that question is figuring out how the hydrogen and oxygen, along with other elements such as carbon and nitrogen, interact in Europa s ocean.NASA is currently putting together a mission slated for the 2020s that would further explore Europa.A radiation-tolerant spacecraft would be sent into orbit around Jupiter to take high-res flyby images of the icy moon to learn more about its composition and ability to sustain life.NOW WATCH: Here's why aliens might actually existLoading video...
Kansainvälisen ICT-alan tutkimus- ja konsultointiyrityksen Gartnerin analyytikon mukaan Nokian tuotemerkkiä ollaan viemässä kilpailuille markkinoille.Nokia ilmoitti keskiviikkona, että se on tehnyt tavaramerkki- ja patenttilisenssisopimuksen, joka antaa HMD Globalille oikeuden luoda matkapuhelimia ja tabletteja Nokian brändillä.Nokialle tämä on kuitenkin riskitön toinen mahdollisuus.Nokia ei rahoita yhtiötä taloudellisesti eikä omista yhtiön osakkeita.Näillä kilpailluilla markkinoilla tarvitaan enemmän kuin tunnettu brändi.Sijoittajat näyttävät innostuneen lisenssisopimuksesta, sillä Nokian osake oli 2,1 prosentin nousussa 4.63 eurossa Helsingin pörssin vaihdetuimpana.
Video game maker Activision Blizzard wants to make e-sports mainstream by bringing video game competitions not to television, but to the world s largest social media company.The California-based company s Media Networks unit announced this month a trio of plans intended to increase awareness of e-sports, hooking viewers with specially formatted videos and smarter statistics.Photo: AFPClosing the gap will be crucial to attracting advertisers, which eSports teams, organisers and companies such as Activision Blizzard expect to be a top source of income for the fledgling industry.But Mike Sepso, senior vice-president of Activision Blizzard Media Networks, says his team will focus on Facebook, as video viewing there has skyrocketed.The size of the audience and the rapid pace of video consumption on Facebook has a lot of advertisers interested in it, he says.Match broadcasts should get a new look in the coming weeks as Activision Blizzard rolls out a new tool that automatically analyses statistical databases and pops findings onto the screen.
